Welcome to the CAS Staff Spotlight, a column featuring members of the CAS staff. For this spotlight, we are proud to introduce you to CAS Chief Executive Officer Victor Carter-Bey.
- Where’s your hometown?
I grew up (and still live) in Baltimore, Maryland, which is famous for its steamed crabs. It’s the city where Francis Scott Key wrote the U.S. national anthem, “The Star-Spangled Banner.” It’s also the hometown of three historic athletes: Babe Ruth and Cal Ripken Jr. from Major League Baseball, and swimmer Michael Phelps, the most decorated Olympian of all time.
- Describe yourself in three words.
Humble, competitive, team-oriented.
- What’s your favorite weekend activity?
Boating. I got my boater’s license in 2019. From March to November, I enjoy cruising the beautiful waters of Maryland’s Chesapeake Bay!
- Where’s your favorite travel destination?
There’s a tie in this case: San Diego and Cape Town, South Africa. The combination of coastal living, mountains and outdoor activities in both cities is amazing. The weather in San Diego is probably the tie-breaker!
- Name one interesting or fun fact about you.
I lettered in three varsity sports in college. In both football and track and field, I was a team captain and a three-time, all-conference selection. Basketball was the third sport.
- What’s your favorite sports team?
This one is easy: the two-time Super Bowl champions, Baltimore Ravens. I’m a huge professional (American) football fan!
- Where’d you go to college and what’s your degree?
I love the classroom and would love to be a career student in another lifetime. For this lifetime, however, I did my undergraduate schooling at The Johns Hopkins University (bachelor’s in political science), my MBA at the Stern School of Business at New York University and my management doctorate at the University of Maryland Global Campus.
- What was your first job out of college?
After undergraduate school, I was pretty sure I wanted to work as a corporate attorney. I took a job as a legal assistant in a corporate law firm and loved the environment, but the legal world wasn’t quite what I expected. After many years of subsequently working in a few different industries, I now have the greatest job in the world here at the Casualty Actuarial Society!
